Divine Intention is the first of what hopefully will be a full album one day, from the pandemic imposed "Basement Sessions". The tracks were put together from the homes of my good friends and great musicians from the Chicago area, and Paris!

Someone once said "There are no teachers, just great students who share ideas with other students." I had the pleasure of having Rob Clearfield and Matt Ulery as "students" almost 20 years ago. I knew then that they were destined for great things, and now the students have become the teacher. I'm thrilled to play with them on this "2020 basement Sessions" release, and I feel that I've become the student of their musical wisdom. Please enjoy "Divine Intention", and check out what they are up to on the internet!
